The `New Year`s Eve` actress has filed papers at court requesting to move away from Los Angeles to her boyfriend Olivier Martinez`s home country with her three-year-old daughter Nahla, but the child`s father Gabriel Aubry is not keen on the suggestion.
According to TMZ.com, Halle believes it would be safer for her and her family to be in France.
However, French-Canadian model Gabriel is thought to have been angered by the move, thinking it is "punitive" and would lead to him never seeing his daughter.
The pair have been involved in a court battle recently after claims by the child`s former nanny Alliance Kamden that Gabriel pushed her while she was holding Nahla.
The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Service has advised the pair to go on a course to help them co-parent their daughter.
A source said: "The report recommends that Halle and Gabriel attend parenting classes together, so that they can co-parent Nahla together. The classes will give them the tools to work through their issues, and hopefully become better parents for it."
Gabriel - who is being investigated for child endangerment following the alleged incident - vehemently denies pushing or touching the nanny.
